10. Poor Things 4/10

“Poor Things”. Where do I start? This movie is a drag from start to finish. Even with stellar performances by Emma Stone and Mark Ruffalo, this movie is weighed down from baseless storytelling, at times incoherent dialogue and an outright offensive storyline pertaining to the main character Bella who in the film comes back to life in the brain of a baby, but is an inhabited with an adult body. Instead of this movie having an honest conversation about consent, given the fact that she has a childlike sense, Bella is put in downright inappropriate and offensive scenes in the movie. The movie paints these scenes as ‘liberation’ or ‘artistic’, I see it as offensive and downright disgusting. While I know this film has its fans, I am definitely not one of them.  By the end of the movie, I felt like a ‘poor thing’ for letting myself sit through this movie for more than two hours.
